      parentwin.childwin.dialog.button.click(), etc. For those of you
      unfamilar, they define a whole class hierarchy that allows you to
      interact with the interface. You must though first define a
      template, such as which buttons, names, etc. are what, and a nice
      name you want to call it. So you can call your Save button ...
      well ... Save, and thus have SaveAsDialog.Save.Click(). Each control
      or GUI element has a whole set of methods that you can control.
      Another nice thing about the template, is that it can be
      conditional. So if you support multiple languages, Open can
      be "Abrir", "Aprire", "Aprir", etc.

      are like constructors, except for the GUI. If a window or set of
      windows needs to be open, before you can do the test, a base state
      can call other class methods, which then can call other class methods
      depending on its base state and so on.
      > Well. If GUItest becomes object oriented and we can hack at the
      GUI some more to do more things, then perhaps we can create a class
      structure like similar to this. We can define templates in XML, but
      do not require them, for those that like to do things manually.

      Err.., "parentwin.childwin.dialog.button.click()". Ouch!

      As time permits, Ernesto should have some nice additions coming
      soon. Ernesto, I would be happy to beta test anything you have
      coming. I know you have a day job, how are things progressing with
      this project?
